Re: How to package your pistol for its trip back to Hi Point
Word of warning about UPS!! I sent my 995 as "machine parts" to Beemiller via UPS from my local UPS STORE and they "lost" it. After three weeks, the local UPS STORE called my house and told my 11 year old that they had my gun and that it was illegal to ship a gun through the UPS STORE. He asked if they were going to press charges, and she indicated that was to be determined. She then told him we could legally(?) ship through the Hub. I was furious for so many reasons, the least of which was that she was wrong. Apparently it is against UPS rules to ship a gun through UPS Stores. Someone at the UPS hub became suspicious of my package due to Beemiller being on the lablel (nowhere did it say firearm on the package) and OPENED the package only to discover my machine parts were actually a 995. They returned it to the UPS Store who returned it to me, and after setting them straight (they told me it was against federal law to ship a fire arm), she admitted that it was merely against UPS STORE rules. I demanded and received a refund and told her to call my distressed son, aplologize, and tell him it was not illegal. Now I'm headed to the FED EX hub to ship.
